3. Understanding the Linux Kernel, Third Edition
Author: by Daniel P. Bovet
Published at: O'Reilly Media; 3rd edition (November 1, 2005)
In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order.
It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn’t kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks. The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel.
Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does.

Understanding the LINUX Kernel: From I/O Ports to Process Management
Author: by Daniel Pierre Bovet
Published at: O'Reilly Media; 1st edition (October 11, 2000)
Why is Linux so efficient? Is it the right operating system for a particular application? What can be learned from looking at the kernel source code? These are the kinds of questions that Understanding the Linux Kernel takes in stride in this guided tour of the code that forms the core of all Linux operating systems.
Linux is presented too often as a casual hacker experiment. It has increasingly become not only a mission-critical part of many organizations, but a sophisticated display of programming skill. It incorporates many advanced operating system concepts and has proven itself extremely robust and efficient for a wide range of uses.
Understanding the Linux Kernel helps readers understand how Linux performs best and how it meets the challenge of different environments. The authors introduce each topic by explaining its importance, and show how kernel operations relate to the utilities that are familiar to Unix programmers and users.
Major topics include:Memory management, including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct Memory Access (DMA)The Virtual File System and the Second Extended File SystemProcess creation and schedulingSignals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device driversTimingSynchronization in the kernelInter-Process Communication (IPC)Program execution
